Queen of Italy Chicken

Say “Marghereta” and many people think of a drink!

However to a pizza aficionado, Marghereta refers to a wonderful 

meat less pizza. It was named after the Queen of Italy in

 1899.Truly a simple stroke of genius. Topped with only tomatoes,

 mozzarella cheese and basil, his creation epitomized all that is

 wonderful about the regions cuisine. It didn’t hurt that this was

 also the colors of the Italian flag: Red, White, and green!

This stuffed chicken breast uses the same simple blend of these

 wonderful flavors. Serve on a bed of pasta if you like. Maybe a

 side of salad, a bottle of wine, etc etc..I think you get the

 picture…  :=)

3 Chicken breast
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 diced roma tomatoes
4 basil leaves chopped
1 clove of garlic minced
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tsp oregano
½ tsp paprika
½ cup Parmesan cheese

pre heat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil, top with a cooking rack and lightly spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

Do your cutting:
Dice the tomato, mince the garlic, slice 2 slices of mozzarella cheese. Rinse off the fresh leaves of basil.

Run a pizza cutter back and forth on the leaves to turn into fine strips.

In a bowl mix the diced tomatoes, shredded mozzarella cheese, and the basil.
In another bowl, mix the mayonnaise with oregano.
In a third bowl, mix the bread crumbs with the Parmesan cheese and paprika.

Cut a pocket into each chicken breast.

Spoon in the tomato mixture. Secure with toothpicks.

Paint one side of the chicken breast with the mayonnaise then put that face down into the corn chips. 

Paint the other side, and flip the breast. Place on baking rack. Repeat with the rest of the chicken.

Lightly spray with cooking spray so that the breading toasts.

Bake for about 45 minutes or until fully cooked. ALWAYS 

check with a thermometer! It should read 160 degrees.

This meal was served with the chicken pieces on a bed of 

thin spaghetti and a side of mixed vegetables for color. The 

aroma is heavenly!

So happy when I get to serve my Master Indy with a dish 

like this.

For music tonight:


To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
